Annual Summit 2020: Improving Outcomes Now

30 March 2020 Start time: 9:00 AM Registration fee: FREE

Our Annual Summit 2020: Improving Outcomes Now is an essential event for anyone with an interest in pancreatic cancer.

Book your place now

In the last fifty years, pancreatic cancer survival rates have barely changed and recent data shows concerning variation in the treatment and care people receive. We can’t afford to wait – by tackling this inconsistency we can change outcomes for those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer now and we need your help to make that happen.

At this Summit, we’ll be focusing on three areas where we believe we can make changes in 2020 to improve outcomes for patients now: improving access to chemotherapy and optimal nutritional care, and speeding up the pathway from diagnosis to treatment.

Through keynote speakers, workshops and a panel discussion, we’ll explore the latest developments and opportunities and work together as an active community to determine what needs to change to ensure everyone diagnosed gets the best care and treatment for them.

Our speakers include:

  • Dr Juan Valle, Professor of Medical Oncology, University of Manchester
  • Ms Oonagh Griffin, Pancreatic Cancer Specialist Dietitian, St Vincent's Hospital Dublin
  • Dr Andrew Millar, Consultant Gastroenterologist and Hepatologist, North Middlesex Hospital
  • Dr Andrew Hart, Professor of Gastroenterology, Norwich Medical School
  • Dr Janet Graham, Consultant Medical Oncologist, Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre
  • Mr Alastair Young, Consultant Pancreaticobiliary Surgeon, St James's University Hospital, Leeds
  • Mr Nicholas Owen, Broadcaster and Journalist
